That’s because the sockets on the STB are video and audio outputs not inputs.

You could use a VCR or a stand-alone RF modulator. Beware though some late VCR models weren’t fitted with a RF modulator, output was SCART only.

It's not all that complicated. There are quite a few about on eBay for example. Make sure you get a UK one. Inputs are usually phono (red or white for audio, yellow for video) and the output goes into your aerial socket.
